Cost of programme:
Powering Transformation invites Year 7- 8 students to a university campus for the day to gain an insight into higher education and the world of work, whilst taking part in a problem-solving challenge which focuses on solving social and environmental issues using tech!
The day is fully facilitated by a TTF, and students will have the chance to engage with Dell mentors and university student ambassadors who support throughout the day. This offering the students a direct opportunity to ask the questions they have on their mind about higher education and the tech sector.
We have partnered with a wide range of universities to offer this workshop and we hope to open the programme for bookings during the Autumn Term (subject to the situation with Covid-19 and schools polices on school trips).
